We recommend two different sites for accessing current affairs and news written for primary school aged children.
Behind The News is an abc program that provides up-to-date information on the issues that impact young people. The site is a great source for online articles, news stories, fact sheets and student reporting.
We also recommend Kids News- a news site for children. This site has current articles linked to reading ages for children. Most articles are accompanied with questions about the story.
*Disclaimer- this site is managed under the Newscorp publisher
Please consider if these resources are appropriate for your family. We encourage families to support children to select news stories that are relevant and appropriate to them.
